"As time goes by memories fade away. What once was sharp, crisp and vivid in our minds, gets blurred. Shapes and colours disappear. No matter how hard we fight. Bits and pieces are gone to never come back.
With Fading Memories I try to visualise this feeling of losing the details. Time has been put to a stop. Details are gone. The images take on a dreamlike surreal atmosphere.
But even the most fragile memory can bring back the whole story. And most of the time, we will remember what is forgotten more beautiful - if
it was tough or hard, softer - than it really was. It's what we do. It's how we survive.
In Fading Memories, I know the story behind the image. The place. The time. The people. You don't. Thanks to what you don't see, the images suggest more open stories than the ones I know. More open stories than they would do if the images were intact. So your mind will create your own story. Immediately. Don't stop it. Have Fading Memories challenge your imagination."
Had a good meeting with Nicolas from NF-Art Gallery (Knokke-Heist) last week. We discussed the selection of the works for the show that will take place from October 27 - January 6 next year. I will be showing larger and smaller formats this time, which is new since until now I only worked with the larger formats. Some works will also be shown boxed, plus a lot of new work also, so exciting and busy times ahead. More soon. #photography #transcendental #tranquility #seascapes #
